Every time I boot the macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 installer in verbose mode, the OS freezes at random outputs. The last entry is always cut off due to the freeze, it always happens shortly before or after VirtualSMC. Here is an example.

The only suspicious things I noticed reading the OpenCore log is that it says: "OS set: Apple Inc. mac OS X 10.12", even though I am installing version 10.13.6. Also, WhateverGreen prints "igfx @ found an unsupported processor 0x0:0x0, please repost this!" After research stretched over multiple days, I am unable to find any answers to this.

My files


opencore.txt (log)

folder structure

I was not able to find any similar problems on my research so now I am asking you, if you have any ideas what could fix this, or if there is anything obvious I am missing here.

Thank you!
